  3. Thank you for coming by my place and leaving your compliment!

    You are a very good poet, I know I have commented before, and I have told myself a time or two to hit the follow button, but for some reason I didn't...gonna change that you have got poetry chops!

    and I would have a straw also...pickling works from the inside as well ass the out...

  13. If "vinotherapy" isn't a real thing, it should be. Kudos to you for digging up the photographer's philosophy and for capturing his surreal spirit in your piece.
